Yanagawa River Boat, Yanagawa
(4.5/5 based on 10+ reviews on the web)
See scenes of the old town from the canal that runs through it on Yanagawa River Boat. The traditional wooden boats, steered with a pole by a boatman at the back of the vessel, float slowly around the canal system of the historic castle town. Along the way, you'll take in sights of the trees, traditional Japanese storehouse architecture, and daily life in the town. Watch how the steerers carefully guide the boats and their handful of passengers, with the peaceful, ambling tours lasting around 1 hour and 10 minutes. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Yanagawa holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Yanagawa River Boat and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • 柳川縱横交錯著人工開鑿的水道,是昔日的護城河、農業和生活用水,總長約930公里,是不折不扣的水鄉。沿著河岸,柳絲輕拂,小橋流水,小船搖櫓沿著不寛的水面搖擺前進,尤其划過石橋,很有那種"欸乃一聲過小橋"的味道。 
  • 秋天的柳川-景緻美極了~~藍天白雲映照下,河川景緻美得猶如一幅畫,一轉折,景緻變換,一幅幅美景,讓人目不暇給~~ 船伕非常幽默詼諧,他用帶著地方方言的日語(夾雜船上觀光客的語言)介紹當地歷史,船行一個小時會經過許多低矮的橋洞,船伕會高亢的吟唱船歌,在橋洞間引發共鳴,非常有趣~~ 船行期間恰巧遇到結婚的船隊,新郎新娘都著傳統日本結婚禮服,新娘子還蠻漂亮的,有緣相會,陪同航行一段,也見識了當地婚禮的儀...  more »
